Halfway there

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported the launch of Just Keep Knitting!

As of today, less than two weeks from the date printed copies became available for purchase,
more than half of the books in the initial print run for Just Keep Knitting have been sold.

This means that the initial up-front investment is well on the way to being recouped, which is a wonderful thing: independent publishing provides the author with complete control over the project, but it also means that financing said project is up to the author as well!

The majority of these sales have been to people I know – either in person or virtually – and I want to thank every one of you for making the launch of the book such a huge success.

If books continue to sell over the next couple of months (i.e. after all the people I know have their copy :D) then I will consider a second printing: I’ll be putting some thought into how I can realistically assess the demand for the book in the next week or two.

Thank you again for welcoming my words into your world.


  1. That must be a huge relief - and a fantastic feeling that people want to read what you have to say.

  2. You got it, Ev! It's both - definitely a relief not to have a pile of expensive books here, and also hugely rewarding to find that other people want to read what I've written, especially when they write to me and tell me that the book spoke to them somehow. That makes my day. :)
